Islamabad :   Following a meeting with the team owners and considering the health and wellbeing of all participants is paramount, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has Thursday decided to postpone the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 6 with immediate effect.
The decision was made after seven covid-19 cases were reported in the competition, which had started on 20 February.
The PCB, as an immediate step, will focus on the safe and secure passage of all participants, and arrange repeat PCR tests, vaccines and isolation facilities to the six participating sides.
PCB Chief Executive Wasim Khan, Director – Commercial Babar Hamid, held a media conference at the National Stadium to provide further details.
Wasim Khan while talking through a virtual press conference said that remaining PSL 6 matches would be resumed at the end of 2021. It was a tough day for all stake holders and cricket loving people in Pakistan and across the world.
CEO PCB further said that our first priority is the safe and immediate transportation of all foreign players and staff back to their homelands. This is not the appropriate time for blame game and negative criticism. We have to ensure the safety of human lives in the first place.
